Things you need to know about contact lenses

Here’s is the details of 4 things you need to know about contact lenses. Let’s go we go through together one by one.

What are the main types of contact lenses and how do they differ?
Contact lenses can be broken down into two main categories; how long they’re worn for, and the eye condition they correct.
How long a lens is worn for is referred to as the wearing pattern. These include daily, monthly, two weekly and extended wear. Each wearing pattern has a different attraction.
Daily lenses are becoming increasingly popular for the convenience and hygiene they provide. Monthly lenses are valued because the same two lenses can be worn for 30 consecutive days.
Two weekly lenses are seen as the middle ground between daily and monthly lenses. Finally, extended wear lenses can even be left in overnight during sleep.
These are especially useful for people who struggle to put their lenses in and out. However, always check with your eye care expert before selecting extended wear lenses. Specialist lenses to correct eye conditions include multifocal lenses and toric lenses.
If you have been diagnosed with presbyopia (a condition more prevalent in the over 40 age bracket) and you find you need to hold a menu at arm’s length to read clearly, your optician may suggest a multifocal lens. This lens will help you focus on objects at varying distances with ease.

Why is it important to look after your eyesight? Is there any way to slow vision loss?
It is very important to look after your eyesight. Why? Because we rely on sight as our dominant sense. This is reflected in how complicated and delicate our eyes are relative to animals. For instance, a dog’s vision is not nearly as sophisticated as humans, but their sense of smell is significantly better.
There are a number of potential interventions to reduce the need for vision correction. Contact lenses (both soft and hard), specific glasses and even eye drops have been suggested, but these tend to have varying degrees of success.
One practical suggestion is to advise our kids to put their devices away. Data from many studies demonstrate that the high level of near work associated with devise usage can increase myopia.
It is also thought that myopia progression may be caused by light levels, so it’s a good idea to get kids outside to play – which keeps them away from their devices for a while!

How can contact lens wearers prevent Contact Lens-Induced Dry Eye (CLIDE)?
Things you need to know about contact lens is most contact lens wearers will be familiar with dry eye, or contact lens-induced dry eye (CLIDE), as it is known. CLIDE can leave lens wearer’s eyes feeling dry, irritated and fatigued.
Luckily there are methods to fight back. Taking regular breaks from lenses can help. We recommend that lens users also have one free lens day a week, if possible.
The water content of lenses may also have some impact on how dry wearers eyes become. A lower water content lens may help towards reducing CLIDE. The reason being is that high water content lenses tend to absorb moisture from the eye via osmosis as they lose water during wear.
Wearing silicone hydrogel lenses may also reduce the symptoms of CLIDE. This is because silicone allows more oxygen to flow to the eye, which is essential for producing healthy natural tears while also maintaining a low water content. It’s worth consulting your optician to see if a new prescription might help you battle dry eyes.

What advice would you give to somebody thinking of trying contact lenses for the first time?
It’s important to get an eye test to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lenses.
If your optician recommends contact lenses to you, the next step is to be clear on what you want your lenses for. This will allow your optician to suggest the best option that really works for your eyes.
Your optician should also suggest appropriate contact lens care products including solutions and eye drops.
If you find the initial lenses your optician selects for you to be uncomfortable, don’t be afraid to experiment with different wearing patterns, lens material, and brands – after further consultation with your eye care expert. Keep trying new lenses until you find a lens you can wear all day without discomfort.

Things you need to know about contact lens is a most important to before you decide to buy it through online or at optical shop and don’t forget to have your contact lens prescriptions at your eye doctor! Let’s make an appointment with us at Malaya Optical Optometrists.

What is Toric Contact Lenses?

Some people who are not too familiar with contact lens still wondering what is toric lenses or what is meant by toric lenses?

What is Toric Contact Lenses?
Astigmatism or toric contact lenses is one of the more common types of refractive errors, or structural problems with your cornea or lens. It leads to light hitting your retina in a way that does not create a clear image of the world.
If you have astigmatism, either your cornea or lens will be shaped in a more oblong fashion, like a football, rather than shaped like a circle. This can cause general blurry vision. If your sight is not corrected well, you can suffer from eye strain, discomfort, or headaches.
One type of lens that can improve mild and moderate corneal astigmatism is a toric lens. These contact lenses are soft contacts, which are more gas permeable than hard contacts. For years, hard contacts have been the preferred treatment for astigmatism to help reshape the eye, but soft contacts allow for better long-term eye health. Because of this, toric contact lenses can be a good option.

Astigmatism Tests

How is an astigmatism corrected?
Most forms of astigmatism are easily treatable. Many people opt for eyeglasses, which are made with a special cylindrical lens prescription that offsets the astigmatism.
Most people who choose glasses to correct an astigmatism only need a single-vision lens that provides clear vision at all distances. People who are past the age of 40 are more likely to require a bifocal or progressive vision lens. Contact lenses are another excellent option for many people with a moderate amount of astigmatism. In fact, some people with an astigmatism do better with contact lenses than with eyeglasses, because the contacts may provide clear vision and an unobstructed, wider range of view than glasses.
Standard soft contact lenses aren’t effective for correcting an astigmatism, but rigid gas-permeable contact lenses can be a viable option for people with a mild astigmatism.
Rigid gas-permeable contact lenses maintain their regular shape when they’re over your cornea, allowing them to make up for the cornea’s irregular shape and make your vision sharper.

Who Is Best Suited for Toric Contact Lenses?
Some people have astigmatism in addition to other refractive errors like nearsightedness or farsightedness. People who treat one refractive error may wear soft contacts that do not treat their astigmatism. If you want to wear contact lenses and have astigmatism, toric lenses are a great option to correct corneal shape while also correcting other refractive errors.
Toric contact lenses use specific meridians to stay in place and improve your visual acuity.idians are measured from your pupil out, like a radius in a circle. These meridians are measured to specific powers to correct your astigmatism.
There are also design elements like slightly weighted or thickened edges to help keep these soft lenses in place. Usually, these weights are at the 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock axes.
There are also different brands of toric contact lenses, which offer different fits. If you try one brand and it does not situate properly in your eye, another brand is likely to suit your needs.

Differences between normal eye and eye with astigmatism

What are the benefits of toric contact lenses?
Toric contact lenses are often the best choice for contact lens wearers with an astigmatism, because they’re specifically designed to address the problem. The special shape of a toric lens creates different refractive, or focusing, powers that can help correct either a corneal or a lenticular astigmatism.
Toric contacts have a thicker zone that keeps them from rotating when they’re in your eyes. It also helps you orient the lenses the same way every time, so you can count on consistent visual acuity.
Because toric contact lenses must be placed on your eye in a specific way, achieving an exact fit is extremely important. Toric lenses have a middle axis, much like the equator that circles the middle of the earth, to keep your line of vision clear. If your lenses don’t fit well, they’ll do little to improve your vision. Toric lenses are available as soft or hard lenses, and come in every wear schedule, ranging from dailies to disposables and beyond.

Work With Your Optometrist for the Best Toric Contact Lens Fit
For a long time, contact lenses were not the preferred way to improve visual acuity in people with astigmatism. However, as technology progresses, toric soft contact lenses are a great option for people with mild to moderate corneal astigmatism. If you are interested in these types of lenses, work with your optometrist to have toric lenses fitted properly to your eyes. Be aware that this can take some extra time or extra visits, but it is well worth it.
Toric contact lenses also cost a little more, but the price difference can be worthwhile for clear vision without glasses. If you know what to expect beforehand, you can then assess if the pros of toric lenses are worth the potential cons. Let’s make an appointment with us at Malaya Optical Optometrists, we are ready to guide you about toric lenses!

What’s the most attractive eye color?

What is the most attractive eye color?

The eyes are considered as the most attractive facial features. Everyone’s eyes are very unique including the color of their eyes. The colored part of the eye is called the iris and controls pupil size. No two people will share the same color, shape or appearance of the eyes. 

Many of us have an interest in a particular color regarding eye color, whether it belongs to us or our partners or loved ones – but did you know that there are colors that are preferred?

From previous research, it has confirmed that people are more interested in brighter irises than darker ones, and it seems that the stereotype of blue and green eyes being the most amazing does exist, as the recent research shows that the most scientifically attractive eye color is either blue and green.

the most attractive eye color

Interestingly, while we can associate this color with “baby blues” or green eyes, the fact is that we do not have the full pigment in our eyes at birth. Thus, many children are born with blue eyes that gradually change into different colors when they grow up. 

While blue eyes tend to have a natural glow to them, brown eyes also definitely have their advantages as well. The people with brown eyes have the most common pigments called melanin in their iris, which means that they are better protected from the sun and have less risk of eye diseases than people with brightly colored eyes. Hazel eyes are in second place because they have most melanin, but their eyes are most pigmented around the edges of iris with a combination of gold, brown and green filling the center. Hazel eyes are also selected as one of the most attractive eye colors and arguably have the best of both worlds, health and beauty. 

The eyes can tell a lot about a person’s emotions and are the most expressive facial features. When discussing the most beautiful eyes in the world, it is important to consider that people have a variety of attractive qualities. The eyes come in different colors, shapes and contrasts that make them very unique for individuals.
